Clean water and happy smiles are among the things mums and dads of the 59,000 babies born last year will be wishing for as their little ones experience the magic of their first summer.

The message from Plunket to mums, dads and caregivers is simple: keep your children safe – always in sight and within reach around water.

To support Plunket’s message, HUGGIES® Little Swimmers® swimpants are leading these two initiatives to help keep pool water clean and also encourage mums and dads or caregivers to get into the water with their littlies, hold them close, keep them safe and enjoy the water together.

1. Swim Schools

2. Water Parks

During December / January we’re also offering staff who supervise toddler pools at some of New Zealand’s bigger water parks FREE pairs of HUGGIES® Little Swimmers® swimpants to give to families who haven’t brought along compliant swimwear for their babies, while stocks last.

Regular nappies swell up and can make swimming difficult for children in the water. Most public pools don’t allow nappies to be used when in the water. HUGGIES® Little Swimmers® swimpants are especially designed not to swell up, to contain any ‘little accidents’ and help prevent ‘Code Brown’ alerts from occurring. At public pools, swimpants are essential for non-toilet trained infants, babies and toddlers.
